Careers in Lockhart River

The future’s looking brighter for our young community members, with a growing number of opportunities to train up into a wide variety of trades and administrative positions.

Already, several of our boys have gained their qualifications in carpentry and mechanics, gaining valuable skills, experience and qualifications to set themselves up for the future, and going forward the community hope to see locally born and educated electricians, roofers, tilers, carpenters, motor mechanics and even clerical staff.

Lockhart River is a great place to live, and now we’re opening up career paths that will enable our youth to remain in their communities, working and learning from more experienced community members, alongside lifelong friends, and gaining qualifications that will see them on their way to a paid career.

This page will be updated with local employment opportunities, or contact Council to ask about career choices.  We’re here to help.
